By default there isn't a policy you can set. I created a custom ADM which I charged around £20 and this covers you for your whole domain. I don't currently have it hosted on my website. This will allow you to set Google as the default search engine. It also works with IE7 too on XP/2003 only.

I am about to make an adm etc up for this anyway to set our new IE8/W7 boxes so I will post it later. Also I think you can use the IEAK8 (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/cc889351.aspx) to make a msi that you install after building that sets the options but I dont know about the limitation of the IEAK.
On a side point Michael please note you cant really promote pay apps etc on this site without sponsorship, only freebies plz.

I have just completed a fesh install of XP SP3 at home. When it got to the point where it asks about Bing/Google etc I captured the following URL:
Add Search Providers to Internet Explorer
[Add Search Providers to Internet Explorer]
My plan is to try this out tomorrow at work. If it works I intend to include the change in the next round of images [or I might be able to create an MSI based upon the changes?]
Either way I will get back and post on any progress.

Ok - managed to solve it with a reg to adm tool. A little bit old school but seems to work just fine

Would it be possible for you to attach your adm file here?

But now that someone else appears to have cracked it why re-invent the wheel? Either way I would like to give it a go on our network to see if it also cures this issue for us.

Bump... any update on this please?
17th November 2010, 11:52 AM #14
would be happy to help but cant for the life of me find where I have put the ADM file :/ whoops.
Any idea how I can find out from GPO where it is located?

please note I have changed the file extension to .txt (from .ADM) in order to upload it.
